Summer Conference Requests


25Live Pro is BU’s room scheduling system. Here you will find information to help you get trained, get access, and start using 25Live to request space for your events. If you have questions about 25Live or you'd like to speak with us about a potential event before requesting a location, you can contact us at or 617-353-2932.

BU Faculty and Staff steps to gain access to 25Live:

1. Watch the training videos on this page.
2. Once the videos have been watched, please log-in to 25Live Pro to create a user record and then log out by closing your web browser.
3. Fill out the "Request Access to 25Live" form at the bottom of this page.
4. Your request will be confirmed within 5 business days.

Student Organizations looking to book space must have their authorized representative place a request in 25Live. When a new authorized representative is designated, they will receive training and instructions from Events & Conferences. Student organizations seeking to book over an "SAO Hold" or seeking to book in a building when it is closed should use the Space Request Form.

Space Request Form: Use this form in lieu of 25Live ONLY IF you meet one of these criteria: Medical Campus departments looking to book CRC space; student organizations seeking to book over an SAO hold; or groups seeking to book in a building when it is closed. If you do not meet one of these criteria, you must use 25Live to book.
